I'm really tired of truckers who don't respect the unwritten laws of the road. It gets really old when I'm just about to pass a rig and then he decides that since he is going a foot per minute faster than the guy in front of him he needs to pass, cutting me off in the process. I'm tired of catching rocks with my windshield. I'm tired of truckers who have seen Smokey and the Bandit one too many times and think they are the Snowman dropping the hammer on the double nickel to outrun the bears beating down the back door. I get really mad when I'm going up a canyon that would be considered a cat. 4 climb were it in the Tour de France when a trucker decides he needs to pass without having one righteous clue about how steep and how long the road ahead is. I hate it when the semi's roll 3 wide. I hate it when they refuse to break the convoy to let me merge onto the highway. I hate it that when I crest a hill in the early morning and the sun is just low enough in the sky to create a bright beam of light bouncing off the discarded jugs of urine so its hard to see. It's been beating me down for a while now.

ME TOO! Just ask Cal, one of my biggest pet peeves when we're driving to Round Round is trucks in the left lane! It drive me nuts! Shouldn't that be illegal?

Just remember what happened to Dennis Weaver in the movie you took that screen shot from. "The Duel", I saw it back in 1972 on a black and white RCA. Can you say creepy? You need to rent it if you haven't already. It's worth a trip to RedBox alone to see that peppy Plymouth Valiant he rolls in.

Oh, and don't you think you are being a little judgmental? Do you have any idea how hard it is to be proficient when you're hopped up on a bowl of weed. Come on!

I get frustrated and super impatient when this happens every once in a while when I'm on the highway. I can't imagine having to deal with this on a daily basis in traffic! ugh!
